“Security Analysis by Benjamin Graham and David L. Dodd: another financial classic that provides a detailed guide to analysing listed companies. Anyone who wants to learn how to value companies and identify those with the best risk/reward ratio will find this book particularly useful.
“A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton G. Malkiel: a book that provides an overview of the financial world and the different ways to invest. Malkiel argues that financial markets are often unpredictable. As a result, the best way to invest is to diversify your portfolio and take a long-term approach.
“The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb: A book that explores the concept of a ‘black swan’, or unpredictable, high-impact events that can have a major impact on financial markets. Taleb’s argument is that these events are impossible to predict and that it is therefore important to be prepared for them.
“Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner: A book that explores how economies and societies work through a series of studies. The authors’ unconventional approach to the analysis of economic phenomena is a source of interesting and original insights.
